Are there no good looking Adidas Michigan hats? What happened to the simple Navy blue hat with maize block M? If Nike did anything right it was for sure hats.
Media Day Embed Spectacular
Tim will spin out posts on his experience at Media Day over the first few days of the week, but right now how about a million embeds? Oh and this from the MVictors photo gallery:
"Please stop doing that, you're making me uncomfortable."
And then there's all the video Boyz n tha Pahokee and MGoVideo put in a non-browser-crippling format:
Denard Robinson (wsgs Mike Rosenberg and Mike Rosenberg's Tiny Afro!):
Several more after the jump.
Yeah, those hats look like some sort of off-brand thing you might find on sale for $6 at Meijer. Disappointing.
*goes out and looks for more random shit to complain about*
I agree!! You should check out the New Era Mich hat. Its got the yellow block M. Best M hat i've seen in a while IMO.
PANIC- I don't see any wings in the first picture.
Well, Tate definitely looks bigger and more cut as, in fact, the whole team does. Whether he practiced or scripted his comments or not they were just right. And, yeah, those hats are...interesting.
Im still pulling for Tate to be our starter.
I'm pulling for whoever can get us to 8+ wins.
I'm sorry but I'm pretty sure Roy Roundtree could've had his own sitcom in the 80s. How can you not like that kid? He's like Webster with game!
Roundtree is quickly becoming my favorite player.
Drew Sharp looking at?
He always looks so much like a South Park character.
Except that he isn't very lovable.
Looks like he just smelled his own writing.
It's tough for a kid to admit his faults to the National Media and accept responsibility (most successful adults can't do this). I'm impressed.
About the hats, I like them. They are different, but I think they look cool.
likes to hit people. "Really fucking hard." (Maybe it was a "fricken" but I hope not.)
Plus interesting comment about Big Will using his weight and Martin using strength and speed.
... that was awesome! I also loved it when he asked the interviewer to clarify his question.
Thank goodness Molk is healthy. I think he will anchor a great offense.
Here's his F'ing good line about why he likes to play football:
(right click or it's lightboxed and the jump is stripped out for some reason...)
I can't F'ing wait for Sept 4th!
P.S. I think this board is about to roll over 600,000 comments!!!
I love that quote. Molk is going to have a great year. I know there is a Hulk likeness T-Shirt for Martin, but I just think the nickname "the Incredible Molk" has a great ring to it.
It was excruciating to watch those videos on MGoBlue.com. I went in the other room, did some stuff, came back, and it was still loading -- was that the HD format?
Yeah, I don't think they have the bandwidth to release 10 HD videos on the same day. It's funny that they have a HD camera but no microphone windscreen. The Mike Martin interview is almost unwatchable because of wind.
No really... Those hats are bad..
Tate owning up is a good sign on maturity.
Man I have been on the look out for the last two years for a good hat and it doesnt look like I am getting closer with that one either.
So pumped for the 4th! Go blue baby!
is the ability of various freep writers (who seem to hate the program) to go to these events. how could you even show your face at U of M anymore? it's like breaking up with your gf and then showing up at her parents' house for dinner, repeatedly, and even asking for seconds.
all while getting drunk and hitting on her 14-year old sister while she's alone in the kitchen.
is pos-bang day!
I want a frameable copy of the picture of Tate in the "Ewww, it's Drew Sharp!" pose. Isn't "a picture worth a thousand columns"?
Especially when you take into account that MSU is the metaphorical 14yo sister.......
Simpler would be better.
I just realized something--wasn't it one year ago at Fan Day that Rosenberg waylaid Stokes and whoever else that was about StretchGate 2009?
In light of that, I'm almost surprised RR allowed anyone but upperclassmen to be available.
No true frosh interviews though. That is very telling.
Mouton looks like a MAN. Here's hoping he plays linebacker as fierce as he looks.
"What's your favorite place to eat on campus?"
You've got a guy giving you intelligent insight into Michigan football and you blow 15 seconds of an interview with this question?
What's you favorite color?
Seconded... when he said the D is going to have a breakout year... I believed him. I have a whole new Jonas Mouton in my head now. Fierce.
From the look on Rosenberg's face, it is quite apparent that the University of Michigan is the last place in the world he would prefer to be, unless he had just bitten into something extremely sour. I guess it serves him right to have to remain on the beat. The only thing that would entertain me more would be if a new editor came in, trying to save the paper, and ordered Rosenberg to write positive things about Michigan. I would love to see his facial expressions then.
I think he looked annoyed at the other interviewers or with the fact that he was having a hard time getting his questions in there. More like a "jebus, would you shut up" face.
Or maybe just annoyed that he looks like such a nerd next to Forcier.
"How do you feel about hitting people like Mike Rosenberg?"
How I wanted the question to end that way.
priceless. Tate couldn't look more uncomfortable with Sharp and Sharp couldn't look anymore like a jerkoff. I also loved the interview b/c Sharp is trying to draw some more controversial statements out of Tate and lil' man handles himself like a pro giving Sharp nothing but positive comments - looks like no article about UoM from Sharp this week.
pepsi. I mean look at those nostrils. Like a vacuum cleaner.
I see nothing wrong with Rosenberg's hair.
My friends who are of the chosen people would call it a jewfro. Albeit a pretty weak one.
Not Fletch's 'fro, I mean Rosenberg's weak excuse for a coif.
Brian needs to get rid of that jibberish under the banner. Panic? Sure doesn't seem like any of these boys are panicing. I think big things are gonna happen this year and a lot of people are going to be surprised.
J.T. Floyd - "I just spent a lot of time this summer perfecting my craft." - He is a great speaker. Hopefully, after a long, successful NFL career, I could definitely see him in broadcasting.
Mouton/Martin - both these guys look like they could pop off my head and eat it for dessert.
There are a bunch more on Youtube.
RVB, Roh, Grady, Ezeh, Brock Mealer, etc..
...And the "No Homo" quote of the day goes to Ryan Van Bergen:
"I like having Mike inside me"
Yeah, that's odd.
for posting these videos, since they are unwatchable on mgoblue.
Mouton, with his size, skills, plus the beard reminds me of Dhani Jones. This is a great thing!
Isn't the only badass on this team. If he were, he would be badass enough.
I was very impressed with his interview. He seemed to be very genuine owning up to his mistakes and looks like he really is putting the work in to compete.
